Because of this, I have to leave the pins loose so that I can line them up each time I open and close the hood
I think the bolts were supposed to be installed at an angle such that they are perpendicular to the hood surface. This means that after drilling at an angle you would need a beveled washer to hold the pin to the to flat core support in a solid manner.
And finishing touch would also have a lynch pin tether so it could not be misplaced. And the best install use heat shrink over the wire cable to prevent scratching the paint.
